With the advancement in technology, age does not seem to be an issue for women to get pregnant. Technology such as in vitro fertilisation (IVF) treatment has brought new hope to women who could not get pregnant naturally.

A Spanish woman, aged 67 became the world’s oldest new mother when she gave birth to twins. It is reported that both mother and babies are fine, and the babies are places in an incubator.

IVF is a technique where egg cells are fertilized by sperm outside the woman’s womb. There are various methods such as ovarian stimulation, IVF laboratory and embryo transfer.
